I love summer

I have a challenge entry here.  I read the challenge over at Holy Cricut.  It was a summer theme and you are to use the colors, yellow, blue and green.  Well I am up for a summery challenge right about now.  

I've been working like CRAZY on Valentine Design Team Projects (and one for an upcoming blog hop) and just felt awesome pulling out the summery papers for inspiration!!

Inside I used a scrap of the blue checkered paper,
a black mat and more gel pen stitches.
I used Simply Charmed for all the cuts.  Both the watermelon and the "I love summer" were cut at 2".  I hid the face on the watermelon and added little dimensional paint "seeds".  I threw a few small prima flowers on and added the rhinestone centers.  White gel pen added the perfect details for the border on the front and the inside. 

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
